Abstract:

"Hannah Arendt was a political theorist famously resistant to both psychoanalysis and feminism. But in Speaking through the Mask, Norma Claire Moruzzi incorporates concepts from feminist psychoanalytic theory into a new interpretive approach to Arendt's work. Supplementing critical readings of several of Arendt's most significant texts (including On Revolution, Rahel Varnhagen, and The Origins of Totalitarianism) with contemporary arguments about constructed social identity, Moruzzi deconstructs Arendt's opposing the social and the political, and reveals Arendt's own textual focus on a politics of agency based on enacted social identity."--Jacket.
